Aw, Baby Goose has a band.  Specifically Dead Man’s Bones, a goth-folk duo made up of Ryan Gosling and Zach Shields.  A record label called Anti has just announced that they’ll be putting out Dead Man’s self-titled debut album in October.  Dead Man’s Bones?  Anti?  Oh, Baby Goose, it’s like we barely even knew you!  Oh I see, you were just trying to sound “dangerous.”  Well when you put it that way I guess it is pretty adorable.  Haha, I love it when you wink and make air quotes.  Let’s promise we’ll never fight and pinkie swear to be best friends forever.

Gosling described the motivation behind the album’s aesthetic: “You know when you’re a kid and you get crayons and papers and just draw whatever you want and it’s just a bunch of messy lines, but to you it makes sense, and then they put it on the fridge? From that point on, you’re always trying to get back on the fridge, you start drawing things that look like something, like, the more it looks like a horse, the more chance you have of getting it on the fridge. We wanted to get back to that place before we were trying to make the fridge. We wanted to work with people who hadn’t been affected in that way yet.” [via Pitchfork]

Translation: Girl, you make me feel just like a kid again. Let’s draw each other with crayon and I’ll play you this song I wrote about hot chocolate.
